2022-2023 Membership Subs Reminder

2022-2023 Membership Subs Reminder

Hello fellow Levin Folk Music Club Members.

The month of June is over and July is here…. So just a gentle reminder this means the beginning of our Club’s new financial year (1st July 2022 – 30th June 2023) is here too and that Membership Subscriptions are due. No alteration to the annual fee- still $25.00 per Member.

You can pay:

  • by cash “at the Concert Door” (our next Concert Night is Friday July 8th), or
  • by Internet Banking into our Club’s Westpac Bank Account 03 0667 0611942 00.
    If you do pay by Internet Banking, please make sure that you advise who the subscription is for.

For anyone wishing to join our Club you can download and print a Membership Application/Renewal Form, then complete the form and bring it along to a Concert Night. You can pay your Membership Subscription via the Internet before bringing along the completed form… just make certain that you advise who the subscription is for!

Also, another reminder-

Come to the Club’s August AGM to be in the draw for a cash refund of your 2022-2023 Membership Subscription.

If you join our Club, or renew your Membership, for the 2022-2023 financial year anytime before the “Lucky Dip” is drawn at the Club’s AGM – and you attend the AGM – you will have the chance of your “name card” being the one drawn. The “Lucky Dip” draw winner, who is present at the time of the draw, will receive a cash refund of their 2022-2023 Membership Subscription. You must be present at the time of the draw to receive the refund.

The Club’s July Newsletter will be advising more about the Club’s AGM, so I’ll just mention here that it is to be held on Friday, 26th August 2022 starting at 7:00pm at the Horowhenua Scottish Society Hall (where we hold our Concerts), 155 Bartholomew Road (Cnr Bartholomew Road and Middlesex Street), Levin.

10 June 2022 – Legal Tender (Ian and Moira Campbell)

10 June 2022 – Legal Tender (Ian and Moira Campbell)

Local Kapiti Coast duo Ian and Moira Campbell (Legal Tender) are delighted to be coming back to perform at the Club on Friday June 10th. Following their recent return from the Paihia Country Rock Festival they will be dusting off the last of the “cobwebs” from the enforced ‘Covid’ break by performing some new “favourites” as well as songs audiences have loved.

The duo have been the recipients of “Gold Guitar” country music awards and are frequent collaborators with various members of the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band and other well know kiwi musicians. Performing a wide range of songs from alternative down-home original songs, and covers, the duo have engaged audiences from the Bay of Islands to the deep south. Songs by various artists including Guy Clarke, Holly Williams, Lorri McKenna and their own originals sung with earthy integrity and powerful vocal harmonies.

The evening at the Levin Folk Music Club begins with the usual blackboard for those who like to participate. Doors open at 7:00pm, with blackboard beginning at 7:30pm. The guests will appear after supper. Admission, which also includes a light supper (tea/coffee and muffins), is $5 for members, $10 non members, $3 for students.

The club also has an acoustic night on the fourth Friday (June 24) where performers can come and have a go in an informal environment.
